Goblin Grenade Discussion

Goblin Arsonist is just a pure budget option so in my opinion it can be freely customized.
For me it's just a placeholder for Goblin Guides and it's fun to blow him with Goblin Grenade xD

Why Manic Vandal over Tuktuk Scrapper? I see it is 1 CMC less, but if you ran 4x Goblin Warchief like most legacy decks you could easily drop for 1-3 mana in most games, or just Vial it in. Plus, it won't go to the bottom of your deck with a ringleader drop pull.

Krenko, Mob Boss is a 1x staple for most decks now.

You don't see many decks in this format running Warren Instigator since it an RR and there are much rougher choices for a 2 drop for goblins I think like Mogg War Marshal, or obviously Goblin Piledriver.

I think Grenzo, Dungeon Warden is a bit slow, but Grenzo, Havoc Raiser as a 1x will start popping up in legacy decklists soon.

I agree with the above comment that Goblin Grenade is not good in legacy. I do however, think a 1x Legion Loyalist is worth it to give your other goblins great buffs as a 1 drop, especially piledrivers.

Boggart Mob can get pretty out of control and lets you retrigger matrons and ringleaders with a sac mechanism like Goblin Sledder or as most decks run, 1x Skirk Prospector. This isn't a popular choice, but worth considering. I run it in my RB goblin deck, but thats for casual. The champion effect of Lightning Crafter has the same retrigger potential.

Frogtosser Banneret could help you reduce costs of some of your goblins just like a Goblin Warchief, but you have neither. I think these are important for tribal goblins (most run warchief over frogtosser for the haste/monored).

1-2x Ancient Tomb seems to have dropped off most top8 decklists, but I like running 2 in mine. I run Food Chain Goblins and dirty kitty though, so my mechanic is different (and more vulnerable, but faster) than vial gobs.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker is nuts.

Consider Terminate or Gempalm Incinerator or Tragic Slip even for removal.

As for the sideboard, many people like running Krosan Grip if they splash with green. Also consider Thoughtseize. I also think that Blood Moon like stated above is great for MONORED in the sideboard if you choose to drop black. I think a 1x Goblin King is nice in the sideboard as well. Red Elemental Blast might help in the side as well.

Goblin Grenade is not legal in Pauper, sadly, as it was never printed as common on MTGO :)

Have you considered running Goblin Grenade? I would take out the Mardu Scouts and one Mountain for 4x Goblin Grenades. Its R for a creature sac and five damage to target creature or player

First time opponents will never see it coming....probably expecting Goblin Grenade but not Emrakul lol... Unless hit with Negate or similar or have an Oblivion Ring in hand... Good Game... Hilarious cool brew +1

Thank you, friend! Goblins are definitely fun with all their synergy and diversity, you gotta love them!


I need to edit my update to Ixalan, but you are right. Kindred Charge is too highly costed for a payoff that did not parallel it, unfortunately.

As for adding Pyroblast for your playgroup, I would 100% endorse that! I would say a seamless switch would be Goblin Grenade. As a matter of fact, I may do that as well. Counter magic in red is always good, plus it destroys blue permanents instead of only dealing 5 damage. That's what I have to say about it!

Yes Blood Moon is expensive for the deck, Apostle's Blessing is not a problem to Goblin Grenade because don't require a target, is an additional cost. I think that i'm liking in use Boros Charm because i can defend or attack, this force me to really splash white but with Wily Goblin this is possible without expensive lands. What do you think Runlue? And yes, Goblin Piledriver + Apostle's Blessing is a great interaction to make him unblockable.
